Housed in a 1937 dairy barn, Oren Dunn City Museum offers a unique view into our region's past. The museum's collection reflects the local and regional history of Tupelo and northeast Mississippi, focusing mainly on major milestones of agriculture, industry and local memorabilia. Examples include: the 1864 Civil War Battle of Harrisburg, the 1936 Tupelo Tornado, Hospital on the Hill, and a 1940's era model railroad of downtown Tupelo. In addition to the our permanent exhibits, Oren Dunn City Museum hosts seasonal exhibits, including but not limited to, the Annual Holiday Toy Exhibit in conjunction with the Lighting of the Museum and the Fossil Road Show & Geology Exhibit. We host two festivals each year: the Dudie Burger Festival, the first Saturday in May, and the Dogtrot Festival, the third Saturday in October. We host annual programs including Museum Summer Camp and Living History Days. Although the museum is closed on Saturdays, we provide special Saturday programming throughout the year. Check us out on the Oren Dunn City Museum Facebook page.
